It was a very small company that I worked for, there were about 8 office & about 10 field. It was a remodeling company and I did the design work as well as 2 others. My boss basically said this: It just isn't working out, we need someone who can be here all the time. I was scheduled to work M, W, Th, & F. They gave me Tuesdays off to work from home thinking that if I could have at least one day per week to not have to go into the office it would help. I still did get sick & call in sometimes. I know that they legally can't fire me for being sick, and the more I think about it the madder I get about it. This is a guy who once told me that he would not give me a promotion that I wanted because I was a woman just getting married & didn't know where my life would end up because women usually follow their husband's career!! I let that one go without a fuss too. There was another woman sitting in her office who probably heard the conversation. This company was the cheapest one I can ever imagine. They took away my medical insurance when they found out I had lupus, told me that flex plan was not available even though others had it. I don't know. Part of me wants to let it go & part of me wants to be upset & sue. I am going to make an appt. at the SS office next week. Just even to go talk to someone about where to even start with it. I have had many people tell me to try going on disability with reasons being that I can't handle work & stress. Although I could probably do things still I can not be dependable. If I work one full day usually the next day I can forget about doing anything! I know you all know what that is like. I want to thank you all for your support right now, it means alot to me. JoD, I will check out that site, even if I don't do anything about it, I'm still curious. I understand their point of view, that it is hard to have an employee that calls in sick or works from home or something. But, don't you just wish that for one week, some of these people could experience what we do, just so they have some kind of idea of what it's like. I don't wish for anyone to be sick, but after that 1 week, take it away. That way they might understand. That's a bad thought.
